The following birds are available for sale at this time. They are priced so the average person can afford them. So don't pass up some good birds just because they're not priced at several hundred dollars each. If you're at the other end of the financial spectrum, you need to realize that these are pedigreed animals and not street pigeons. The day of the five-dollar pigeon is long gone. They are priced so I can receive some reasonable return on the investment I have made in feed, time caring for them, etc.

What is a pigeon really worth? The value of a pigeon depends on three factors, and you can read about them here.

You will find some rare-colored birds among those listed. It is important to remember that we are a FLYING loft, not a COLOR loft. Our rare colors are required to fly right with the other birds. We sell youngsters that we raise out of our flyers, but we will seldom sell the rare-colored flyers themselves because we will be using them later as breeders.

I am selling pigeons, not paper, but almost all of those listed below have extensive pedigrees. I will provide whatever pedigree information I have on each bird listed. Feel free to email me and request an electronic copy of the pedigree of any bird listed here.

PLEASE NOTE: The last few years have seen significant increases in postal rates. Therefore, if birds are to be shipped to you (shipping to destinations in the USA only), the shipping charge will be $55 for one or two birds, $75 for 3 or 4 birds, $100 for 5 or 6 birds, and $120 for 7 or 8 birds to cover the cost of postage and a special USPS-approved shipping box. (Larger boxes not only cost more, but they also mean even more weight, hence the jump in shipping costs as the number of birds increases.) More than 8 birds will require a second box.

Payment can be made via money order (I do not accept personal checks) or you can use Visa or Mastercard by clicking on the Paypal logo below. Paypal is preferred.

Special Offer - Top breeders from my breeding loft.

Over the last few years I have experienced some back and shoulder problems that make it necessary for me to reduce the size of my breeding flock even more. For that reason I will be offering some of my top quality breeders, both in standard and rare colors, as soon as they feed out their current round of youngsters. Even the rare colors have been upgraded to racing quality. We have never considered ourselves a "color loft". We are a flying loft that likes to breed an eye-appealing variety of colors. These mated pairs will be priced at $300 a pair. Most pairs are blends of various families that have been mated for performance, with only a few being "pure" of a particular family. Many of these are down from AU Registered Champions bred by top flyers here in the Midwest.

For serious inquiries only. Contact me via email and I will send you a list of what is available. (No whites available)
1.

2013 silver Skylake Sion cock, bred by Denny Fackler out of a pair of birds directly from Dr. Mike Brown. Sire is out of "Reggie" and "Pat", both of which flew 550 miles. Dam is out of "Silver Bullet" and "Miss Princess". "Silver Bullet" flew out to 600 miles as a yearling. Full pedigree. Price: $100

2. 2014 blue bar cock no. 4982, carries the gene for recessive opal. He was a late hatch and therefore was unflown. Sire is out of "Heisenberg", my best old bird flyer over the last 10 years and the winner of 2 races and numerous other diplomas. Sire also raised a race winner himself. Dam is the mother of "Snake River", a white laced recessive opal cock that won a 200-mile race. So this cock is a half-brother to race winners and multiple diploma winners on both sides. He is half Janssen and about 1/4 HVR. Price: $75.
3. Son of a race winner! 2013 blue check cock, no. 3051. Flew 6races out to 180 miles. He is a mixture of several families, with established quality on both sides. Sire is unflown but a full brother to "Snake River", a 200-mile winner. "Snake River" is a beautiful "white lace" or "pearl" coloration, which is actually spread recessive opal. Dam is a true silver (diulte blue) bred by Sal Rodriguez of Utah. She was 1st club(254 birds) and 2nd concourse (500+ birds)at 162 miles. Remember, paper doesn't fly; pigeons do. This bird is fully pedigreed, but performance, not fancy names, is what matters. This is a performance pedigree all the way. Price: $75
4. 2015 "Schwartztiger" almond cock, a grandson of "Heisenberg" my best old bird flyer over the last ten years. Sire is an unflown son of Heisenberg and a sire of several diploma winners. Dam is an almond hen that has flown five races out to 250 miles. This cock is primarily Janssen on his sires side; dam's side is a blend of several families. Full pedigree. Price: $100
5. 2013 white lace cock (spread recessive opal). This is a late hatch that was not flown, but he is a full brother to "Snake River", a 200-mile winner with multiple diplomas. All young from this cock will carry the gene for recessive opal. When mated to an opal hen, all young will be opal; when mated to a blue bar or check, about half the young will be blacks. Full pedigree. Price: $125
6. 2014 "Cherry" (red phase recessive opal) cock no. 4962, checker carrying barless. Sire is an unflown full brother of "Snake River", a 200-mile winner. Mother is a barless blue hen that is a granddaughter of the imported hen recently sold on this site. This is a medium-size pigeon that feels great in the hand. Although a late hatch that has not been flown, he is down from flying stock and should make a great breeder for someone. Full pedigree. Price: $100
7. SOLD2012 barless blue/WF hen, no. 125. Granddaughter of “The Iceman”, a 300-mile winner. Her sire is an ash red barless “Goodjer” cock bred by Willi Thiel of Australia. Since she was an August hatch she was never flown and went directly into the stock loft. She is a very light blue and has raised some unusual colored youngsters that may have been faded or Qualmond but we are not sure. Her sire was a very light ash red, so there likely is some kind of recessive lightening gene involved here, but we are not sure what it is. I would like to do some test matings with her but have been unable to do so due to space limitations in my loft, along with the fact that I am downsizing due to some health issues with my back. Price: $125 - Sold (RA)
8. 2014 "Cherry" (red phase recessive opal) hen no. 37000. This absolutely gorgeous hen is a full sister to "Snake River," a multiple diploma winner, including 1st at 200 miles. She also has a brother that was 2nd at 130 miles. This is a fairly small hen but she handles extremely well with a nice solid body, tight vents and narrow tail that just slip through your hand. You will love her! Buy her now before I change my mind and put her in the stock loft. Price: $100
9. 2013 dark check Dworek hen from the flying team. 5th @ 120 miles. As of 2015 she has flown 6 races out to 180 miles. She is also a half-sister to a race winner @ 125 miles. Sire was purchased from Barry Venn and is down from Dworek's famous "609" on both sides. Dam is a granddaughter of "The Iceman", a 300-mile winner. Price: $75.
10. SOLDThis is not a white! It looks like a white, but it is an ash red brown qualmond barless cock, no. 3177-13 . The qualmond is linked to brown. Sire is a brown Qualmond barless that goes back to the long distance browns of the late Bob Eaton and 969 Janssen on one side and “The Iceman”, a 300-mile winner on the other. Dam is a yellow check barless that flew 125 miles and placed 10th out of 113 birds and 5 lofts prior to being stocked. She is basically Janssen/VanLoon, and her sire is a diploma winner. Full pedigree Price: $100 - Sold (RA)
11. 2013 reduced hen, bred for stock but down from flying families. Full pedigree on sire's side, who is mostly Janssen; dam is from a friend who also flies rare colors but I did not get a pedigree on her. So we have full pedigree on sire's side but just her mother on the other side. Price: $100.
12. 2013 dilute gimpel hen bred by Jason Gelder. A pair of gimpels from this same family raised a bird that was 4th in the 200 mile Hoosier Classic for Michaele Luisi. No pedigree. Price: $25
13. SOLD2013 brown barless cock no. 3196. This is a double grandson of "The Iceman", a 300-mile winner. He is a late hatch and therefore was not flown, but his full brother flew 3 races successfully prior to being sold and sent to The Phillipines. I have him listed as a brown, but I think he is actually a khaki, since he appears to be somewhat lighter than most of my barless browns. He is primarily Janssen. His dam is a khaki and his sire carries brown and dilute, so the odds that he is actually a dilute brown are very high. One of his grandmothers raised a money winner in the GNEO futurity a few years ago, and the other grandmother is straight Blue Miracle Janssen. Full pedigree. Price: $150 - Sold (RA)
14. 2014 ash red bar hen. This pigeon flew out to 250 miles as a young bird for the breeder. I understand she is likely down from some of my barless but since the breeder did not supply me with a pedigree, I don't know if she actually carries barless, since there is at least one generation in between. Her dark color also indicates she likely carries recessive red, but that would require mating her to a recessive red cock to find out. Since she is in a heavy moult, the picture cannot do her justice. This is a very nice pigeon! Because she has flown past 250 miles as a YB, I would like to breed from her myself, but space limitations and my need to cut back overall won't allow for it. Price: $50.
